ELENA JULIA GREENLEE ON THE ART OF CONNECTING WITH COLLABORATORS


At (1:30) "... I was really open and honest with them about what do I want out of this . . . What will make this investment worth it for me and encourage them to also always be open with me about that . . . That's actually something that we learned in our "acting classes" . . . working on how to direct actors, to always "check-in" and to always reach "agreements." So we did that throughout our whole process and it made it such a joy to work together and something that I would never in a million years never regret a moment of. I do want to keep producing."

My friend and former student Elena Julia Greenlee at the San Francisco Film Festival speaks eloquently about the process of producing Josef Wladyka's award-winning film "Manos Sucias" and using the processes of "checking-in" and "making agreements" that I taught them, throughout the whole time of making their film: The Art of Connecting.
